The Telegraph has reported that it is “one of the most historically significant houses in the area, owned from the 14th to the 17th centuries by the de Veres, the richest family in the country after the monarch.” Edward de Vere is to this day one of the most popular alternative authors credited for the works of Shakespeare. It is thought that King Henry VIII visited the property on a hunting expedition!

The house has many attractive features including a beautiful garden with flowers and chickens, several reception areas and an outdoor dining terrace. The front door boasting carved huntsmen on either side is apparently the second most photographed doorway in the UK, after the Prime Minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street.
